Noel Gallagher has some thoughts about ‘slack-jawed f–kwit’ Matt Healy & The 1975

Noel Gallagher spoke to Spin this week to promote a variety of projects. But the real news is that Noel Gallagher is, as always, spicy as ever. If he’s not criticizing Prince Harry for… beefing with his family, he’s talking sh-t about people within the music industry. Noel’s 55 years old, and he was part of one of the most successful bands of the 1990s and it’s given him a unique perspective on music today and the younger a–holes within the music industry. This Spin interview is making news because Noel destroyed Taylor Swift’s racist boyfriend in just a handful of sentences. That’s right, Noel Gallagher has some thoughts on Matt Healy and The 1975. LMAO. Some highlights from Spin:

SPIN: Did you hear what Matty Healy of the 1975 said about Oasis a few months ago?
Noel Gallagher:
Oh, that f-cking slack-jawed f-ckwit. What did he say?

Spin: Among other things, he said, “Can you imagine being in potentially – right now, still – the coolest band in the world, and not doing it because you’re in a mard with your brother?”
He would never be able to imagine it. He needs to go over how sh-t his band is and split up.

Spin: Did you hear any of this AI Oasis music that recently popped up?
F–king embarrassing. I just think people clearly have too much time and money on their hands if they’re f–king around with that for a laugh. I mean, who wants to f–king hear Ringo Starr singing “She’s Electric” and Freddie Mercury singing “Don’t Look Back in Anger?” Life’s too short for that sh-t.

Spin: What do you think of AI?
AI will be the final nail in the coffin of music. I’m sure that the major record labels are now working on the technology to copyright it and machines will write music. Why hire a songwriter when you can own a machine to do it? Then Harry Styles can pump out Harry Styles music for the rest of his f–king life.

Spin: Let’s talk soccer. Do you think Manchester City can win the treble? Which, of course, would include knocking off your city rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final.
It’s f–king on, and those guys [Manchester United] are about as relevant as the 1975.

[From Spin]

“F–king slack-jawed f–kwit” is poetry. THIS is a lyricist at work. And calling The 1975 a sh-t band and saying they should split up – *chef’s kiss*. What did Matt Healy ever do to Noel Gallagher, I wonder? Or do you think it’s just Noel starting sh-t unprovoked? It could be either, but I’d love to know the backstory if there is one.

    I never thought I’d agree with a POS like Noel Gallagher, but here we are, lol

    • Christine says:

      SAME. What is the world coming to, I feel like my 90s self is going to show up in my dreams tonight and make me stand naked on the stage of an Oasis concert.

  2. Kitten says:

    LOL I always thoroughly enjoy Noel’s grumpiness. Just gonna refer to Healy as “Slack-Jawed F*ckwit” from now on lmaoooooo.

  3. EasternViolet says:

    Noel has always been the genius behind Oasis. He has no filter (which I find so amusing) and knows the music scene in the UK. He Doesn’t need a personal beef call out something he thinks is shite.

    • Dierski says:

      Totally, thats my favorite thing – he has no singular beefs, he just dgaf about offending people he doesn’t like. Always entertaining!

  4. Jane says:

    I hadn’t heard of this guy before Taylor took up with him and now I’m reading about him in multiple posts a day. It’s clear what he’s getting out of the relationship, but I have no idea what she is. He looks like Panic! At The Disco after a weeklong bender.

    • Pinkosaurus says:

      I think this is going to hit Harry Mealy right in the feels. I’m sure he thinks he is a musical artiste and a legit respected musical genius calls him a fuckwit and puts him in the same disparaging conversation as Harry Styles. Couldn’t happen to a better pretentious racist POS.

    • Fig says:

      She’s getting love bombed probably

    • Capri says:

      She’s getting her fix, lol, like an addict. A hit of that sweet new relationship limerence, lots of public attention, writing material for years. Plus some greasy controversial p een. It’s perfect for her.

  5. Olivia says:

    Noel is the original real life Roy Kent.

    Matty Healy is a wannabe Nick Cave 😂

  6. Kitten says:

    “I can deal with them dressing like they’re in their 20s and being in their 50s, but acting like they’re in their 20s — they need to grow up,” Healy continued. “They’re sat around in Little Venice and Little Highgate, crying because they’re in an argument with their brother. Grow up, headline Glastonbury.”

    God DAMN. I mean, if you’re gonna come for Gallagher like that……

  7. Haylie says:

    Noel calling someone else a slack-jawed fuckwit is like that pointing Spider-Man meme. Game recognizes game.

  8. Tarte au Citron says:

    I’m probably An Old at this point but I have no idea what the 1975 sound like or what songs they’ve released. All gossip page stuff. To me, Matty Healy is a UK nepo baby with a big gob.

    • JM says:

      Omg I didn’t know he was a nepo baby too. Just add that to the hot dog water soaked stale cigarette of a person he is. Way to pick a real winner, Taylor.

  9. Becks1 says:

    I had no idea who Matt Healy was before the past two weeks and thats just from headlines on here (I dont really follow Taylor Swift gossip) so I have no context for this….but I still find it kind of hilarious.

    • Coco says:

      All you need to know is that Matt Healy is racist, sexist, and anti-somatic . He made fun of a woman for being Asian and says he enjoys watching torture porn were black women get S.A and much more.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        What an absolutely sorry excuse of good air wasted on this repulsive excrement. How is Healy able to still be an active musician with these abhorrent traits??

  10. Shawna says:

    Noel preemptively has sh*t to say about any musical act.

    Bringing up feuding brothers, you’d think Noel would have some sympathy with Harry about that! The Gallaghers had quite a rough childhood, so my theory is that a lot of their fights are based on those experiences. You can’t just get over those things unless you really work on yourself, and the Gallaghers are too busy trying to perform to work on themselves. Sigh.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I would question any form of empathy from Noel as suspect. It’s simply not in his DNA, unfortunately.

  11. K says:


  12. Ameerah M says:

    Noel is a a f-ckwit himself but it’s always funny when f-ckwits collide. In this case I am rooting for Noel.

  13. Iz says:

    I hadn’t heard of Healy, nor got why people don’t like him being with Taylor but wow. He has such an unpleasant non-face. Quite apart from the stuff that comes out of it.

    • Jess says:

      The 1974 are basically a mid pop-rock band with a lead singer who thinks he’s in a punk band.
      Most of their fans are young girls -nothing wrong with that but MH clearly has a complex about not being taken serious enough by a male audience and ramps up his cliched rock star persona because he’s soooooo edgy.

      He’s also weirdly jealous of Harry styles and keep attacking him. The funny thing is Harry will barely acknowledge him.

  14. HeyKay says:

    Both Noel and Liam are still creative, talented and far bigger stars then this MH fella will ever be.
    Fans are eager for Oasis to reunite, I know I am.

    Matt Healey, who?
    He’ll be forever known from here on out as “That guy who dated Taylor Swift”

    Gotta love those Gallagher Bros, they just continue to sh*t talk whoever they want to. 😁
    Noel is right about AI and the music biz too.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Hey Kay, he is right about AI and how it will eventually evolve to weed out artists, to a point. But AI should concern all of us due to its capabilities.

      A woman, whose daughter was on a ski trip received a phone call with her daughter expressing fear and crying as she was being held for ransom. They demanded 1 Mil and had she not been with a group of friends she would have ended up paying the ransom. The callers were able to gain 3 seconds of her daughter’s voice to create the ransom call. Just 3 seconds was all that was needed.

  15. PunkPrincessPhD says:

    As a former teenage Oasis fan, I’m very aware that one does not need to *start* shit with either Gallagher in order to be on the receiving end of it. That said, the comment from Swealy referenced by the interviewer (“You could be in the coolest band ever but you’re too busy fighting with your brother.”) would be enough to do it.

    Noel is the dictionary definition of arrogant prick, but here he ain’t wrong.

  16. Lala11_7 says:

    They’re BOTH Tw-ts…☹️it’s just that one of them has music 🎶 that I’ve listened to for almost 40 years & the other has music I will NEVA listen too….so there’s THAT!

  17. Talita says:

    Noel and Liam are oddly entertaining, I’m always here for them lol

  18. LoryD75 says:

    I think it’s interesting that the American press is calling him “Matty” Healy. I wonder if that’s Taylor’s team pushing a diminutive to rebrand him? Or when people do a Google search they don’t automatically find out he’s a piece of shit.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I think that it’s very likely that TS’s people are trying to rebrand him. Though once he is done using TS, he will be gone in a second. I think for him it’s all for publicity, as for TS it’s not.

    • OperaCake says:

      No, it’s his name. Even his Wiki says Matty. No one had ever called him him “Matt” before the current conversation…

    • Tia Maria says:

      I’m pretty sure I’ve heard his mum refer to him as Matty in the past. She’s an obnoxious loud mouth so I try not to listen to her too much!

  19. Joanna valley says:

    They are both loud mouthed arrogant Manchester born Brits who provide colourful commentary and think they’re wittier than they actually are.
    The difference is the oasis boys were really working class lads whereas Healy is a Nepo baby. He has always wanted the same male audience and respect as oasis and has always rebelled against the teeny bopper fans that actually do make up his audience. He acts like he’s fronting the sex pistols.
    Also oasis has songs that, love it or hate it, the whole world can sing along to. Has there been a song like Wonderwall since? I’ve heard lots of 1975 songs and there’s not one that’s even remotely as unique or catchy.

  20. Emily says:

    Matty wishes the 1975 was Oasis. Because they’re both from Manchester, I think Matt gets asked about them a lot or brings them up — he 💯 wants the comparison.

    Too bad 1975 sounds exactly like a Bleachers cover band.

  21. KT says:

    Noel is a prick – he has always been a prick, he will never not be a prick.

    I don’t care about Mat Healy at all; I’m just saying, Prick’s gonna Prick.

  22. Meredith says:

    Does Matt Healy purposely dress like Agent Smith?

  23. Noely says:

    The fact that they threw Mancheste United in the mix and he said they would be as irrelevant as The 1975 is HILARIOUS.

  24. Burpany says:

    This reminds me of the whole MGK/Eminem feud, in that it seems like Matty Healy called out Oasis specifically to get them to pay attention to him. I highly doubt that Noel Gallagher would waste his time on this guy/his band if he hadn’t brought it up first.
    I can picture MH reading this article and thinking, “Noel Gallagher knows who I am!” all while clutching his Oasis albums.

  25. Sue says:

    I admit, I knew literally nothing about Matt Healy until a couple of days ago. So yes, I agree with Noel on his sentiments but Noel is also a constantly constipated angry old bloke. He doesn’t seem like he’d be fun at parties. I say this as someone who idolized Oasis in the 90s. I don’t know why. Noel was as angry a man then as he is now.

  26. Talia says:

    I finally bothered myself to check out a few 1975 tunes and holy hell they suck. Plus the bland teenybopper music combined with Healy’s try hard edgy persona is an hilarious mix.
    I’m seeing a bunch of yeah but Noel is a an arse too comments. Well that may or may not be true but the difference is Gallagher can write a song.

  27. Kay says:

    Liam had some thoughts about the slack-jawed f**kwit in February. Also brilliant

  28. j.ferber says:

    You can always rely on the brothers to savage everyone, including each other. Of course he is right on Matt Healy.

  29. Ms. says:

    It never occurred to me to hear Freddie Mercury sing “Don’t Look Back In Anger” and now I’ve never wanted anything more.

    Noel is, as always, being himself and calling it like it is, with a little sauce. He has spent enough time with slack jawed f***wits to know them.

  30. j.ferber says:

    But is it also possible both brothers are themselves slack-jawed f-ck-wits and they know whereof they speak?

    • kirk says:

      Kudos 🥂
      As for his take on AI, dunno. Remember listening to song I liked on Sirius and wondering about it because I’ve never liked Drake’s misogynistic spiel. Must be influence of The Weeknd methinks. Ha! Fool me.

      • Kim says:

        Drake supposedly didnt credit the weeknd for a few songs. And The weeknd said drake took his sound or lyrics for a few tracks.
        They are both from Canadian. Drake was thinking of signing the weeknd but the weeknd passed after he didn’t get credit.

      • kirk says:

        Referring to the AI-generated song “Heart on My Sleeve” supposedly made by ‘ghostwriter 977’ that was pulled from Spotify and Apple by Drake’s label. At least that’s the story as I understand it.

  31. Jensa says:

    I just think “Slack-Jawed F*ckwit” is perfect for that twerp Healy. What makes it even better is that it’s obvious he really wishes he was Noel Gallagher.

  32. @poppedbubble says:

    “What did Matt Healy ever do to Noel Gallagher, I wonder?” Does it matter? He’s just as much of an ass and none of what he’s talking about deserves “teams.”

  33. Miasys says:

    Maybe the slack-jawed f*ckwit will talk shit about Morrissey and we can really have some fun with this.

  34. Saschafrom76 says:

    It’s official hells frozen over I’m with Grouchy Oasis Brother

  35. Kim says:

    They both are right.
    I understand why both brothers don’t want to be bothered with each other but come on. One of them needed money real bad a few years ago.
    Then we have Matty who is trying to talk his way into being a star. Shouldn’t the music do that for you.

  36. sansfarts says:

    I live in Canada and happened to have the radio on when Matt Healy said the bros should just suck it up and I couldn’t disagree more. I’ve always been Team Noel. Both brothers are assholes, but Liam seems like he might actually have a personality disorder (borderline, I suspect) if you pay close enough attention. Noel did the right thing cutting him out of his life, I don’t see why he’d share the stage with him at this point. Liam can’t sing for shit anymore, it’s painful hearing him miss the notes.

  37. Deno says:

    I love both Noel and Liam. Yes, they are a-holes, but I agree with them 9 times out of 10. And they have an excellent sense of humour.
